Mashed potatoes from baked?

I just wondered if anyone has ever tried using leftover baked potatoes to make mashed ones?

Sure. They'll be great. They will be drier than boiled so you may have to add a touch more liquid.

when I make twice baked potatoes, I mash them first then add the other goodies. Things like sliced green onion, sour cream or cream cheese, pepper jack cheese, or garlic butter even mashed then add some gravy to which I've added sauteed mushrooms YUM..Makes me want to eat for the first time in days

I cut them up, put them in a plastic bag with a little water, and nuke them until just warm and soft. Transfer to a pot and add some butter and milk/cream and heat until smashable, then smash. Love those skin bits! It's great to add bacon, cheese, chives, garlic, etc.

Many evenings I put 2 potatos in the microwave, scrape them out when they're done, then mash them with milk and butter.

It just seems quicker to me and we like the taste.

I had a meal where the chef created a crushed potato with garlic, cream and green onion that was fantastic. I asked so I could make it at home. She used baked potatoes and herbed them, crushed them, added on roasted garlic and cream and butter.

Was a real nice side dish.
